Kadarius Toney Highlights
Kadarius Toney Draft Profile
Kadarius Toney is as pure an athlete as they come. He played two sports during his time at Florida, starring not only on the gridiron but on the track team as well. Prior to his tenure as a Gator, Toney played quarterback for the final two years of high school. The QB numbers are staggering for a guy about to be drafted into the NFL as a receiver. After some shifting between running back and receiver during his first season, Toney settled into his role as a dynamic playmaker in the slot. He has excellent size and demonstrated an ability to impact the game whether he had the ball in his hands or not. His speed makes him a downfield threat in any vertical attacking scheme.
Toney did have his first college season cut short by injury and also missed time in 2019. While it appears to be a thing of the past, it’s worth noting that there is injury history. Because he played quarterback in high schools, Toney’s route tree is somewhat limited. While he was very effective in the role Florida gave him, it remains to be seen whether that will apply across other schemes at the NFL level. In addition, his technique suffers from wasted motion and a lack of strength when up against press coverage.
